2017 is coming to an end, and it’s time to reflect on the things you’ve done this year, the people you’ve met, the good times you’ve had, the gigs and shows you’ve been to, and the music you’ve been listening to. At The Great Frog, we take pride in our tunes, and we’d be lying if we said we always agreed on what we wanted to listen to. In fact, it’s caused some full blown arguments over the years. Still, what we all have in common is a genuine interest in music and rock, whether it be classic rock, heavy or black metal, psychedelic or punk.
Raging above all others as our most played song of the year is Scorpions’ Sails of Charon of their 1977 ‘Taken by Force’ album, the Uli Jon Roth era. The song’s been played relentlessly in the shop, which is a song we’re now forced to play in moderation because A. we get too carried away and start air-guitaring, and B. Not everyone wants to listen to Scorpions religiously and constantly.
Below you’ll find a playlist featuring of course, ‘Sails of Charon’, plus 29 other of the most played songs in our London flagship store, ranging from old school heavy rock and metal like Black Sabbath and Judas Priest, to San Diego psych connoisseurs Earthless and Nashville’s finest All Them Witches.
